This is the best Franken-Duofold you might ever find. Click the headline for close-ups. The cap is a truly handsome flattop model with no cracks, a little brassing and some shallow marks where the ball of the cap once rested. Of course, you can see what looks to be a shriner's emblem on top. The barrel is maybe 3 or 4 shades lighter and in even better condition. Also noteworthy is the streamlined blind cap that just by the thinnest margin doesn't quite go as wide as the barrel it snugs against. We restored this pen with a new ink sac. You will write a very smooth medium line that will make you want this to be your daily vintage pen. Its 14k gold nib is a Duofold nib, and it has a more modern comb feed. For all of its flaws, it is an astonishingly good pen. 13.7cm capped.
